Doug Cummings on "Howl’s Moving Castle"

from filmjourney…

I find the mystery in Miyazaki’s films to be one of their greatest pleasures, expanding their worlds with each viewer’s imagination. When I was a kid, I loved to scratch my head. Not that Miyazaki crafts puzzling films; his cinema is highly accessible and entertaining at any age, yet he’s a filmmaker who also appreciates how a few unanswered questions in the right places can enrich a fantasy story.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    Bono was a bit hoarse, but it worked anyway and the jokes were funny. I just couldn’t believe they cut off Vertigo!!

    I had classes this morning, but I stayed up. It was great when they played music, or talked a little. If O’Brien wants U2 again he should rent out an hour of TV and present U2: The Infomercial. During “Vertigo”, was Bono showing off a new vibrato technique or was it merely feedback?

    I stayed up all night waiting to see that show. I thought Bono sounded a little hoarse… and the jokes were a little corny, but I was still THRILLED to be watching them… I’d be even more thrilled if it wasn’t through my TV. (a girl can dream!)
